Judge's Table


The onus in proving any criminal offence always remains with the prosecution. The NSW Police or other Prosecuting authority must prove each element beyond reasonable doubt.


However, even in cases where an offence can be proven beyond reasonable doubt, an accused has the right to raise a legal defence to the charge. Such Legal Defence include self-defence, honest and reasonable mistake of fact, claim of right, duress, etc.


If you are going to Court and want to engage a specialist Court Trial or Court Defence Lawyer, contact us as soon as possible to discuss your case and the best way to prepare for a plea of not guilty and defence of the allegation.



Bail has many different forms and can include Police Bail (bail granted by the police) or Court Bail (Bail granted by the Court). Applying for bail is an extremely important assignment as there is often a significant delay in the finalisation of Criminal Proceedings.


It is vital that you engage the best Bail Lawyers for your matter, especially for Show Cause bail applications which provides an additional hurdle to overcome in any bail application. If you are refused bail in the Local Court, an application can be made to the Supreme Court without having to establish a 'change of circumstances'
